    Pull off the fuel line and glow plug, pull the starter several times to clean it out. Check the glow plug, make sure it's bright orange. If your having to hold the trottle wide open, it's too rich or flooded or fouled plug. If you have a primer, prime till fuel reaches the carb and then once more, too much will flood the engine. Also try a heat gun or blow drier to warm up the engine a little first, then try to start it.

    Sounds like the low end is very very rich if it wont even start and run long enough to get the glow plug off. just my $.02
